The 2nd Annual Rick Case Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County Basketball Tournament was held March 25 – 28. The Florence A. DeGeorge Club in Davie hosted in the south and the Jim & Jan Moran Club in Deerfield Beach hosted in the north. The tournament divides club members in two divisions, which are north and south and into three age classifications, which include Cadets (ages 6-10), Juniors (ages 11-15) and Seniors (ages 16-18). The goal of the tournament is to develop teamwork, while fostering good character and sportsmanship at the same time. The ultimate outcome was the chance to compete in the County Championship.
Divisional Championship winners for the North & South were as follows:
North Cadets Champs: Thomas D. Stephanis
South Cadets Champs: Marti Huizenga
North Juniors Champs: Thomas D. Stephanis
South Juniors Champs: Rick & Rita Case
North Seniors Champs: Thomas D. Stephanis
South Seniors Champs: Florence A. DeGeorge.
The Championship game was held on March 29 at the Rick Case Arena on the Nova Southeastern University campus. It was a real treat for our Club members to have the experience to play on a college court, that included all the lights, sounds and spectators who came out to watch. The 2019 Rick Case Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County Champions are:
Cadets: Thomas D. Stephanis
Juniors: Thomas D. Stephanis
Seniors: Thomas D. Stephanis
Trophies were presented to the Champions and the runner-up of each division. Congratulations to everyone for a spectacular tournament. We would like to thank Rick and Rita Case and Tony Van Ness for their support of this tournament and our Club members.
